Happy New Year folks, and may 2014 be a good one for ya!
asshole trophy

This guy just doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut ….., so he becomes our first candidate for “Asshole of the Day” for 2014!
Less than two weeks after Phil Robertson’s anti-gay controversy got him temporarily suspended from his A&E reality series, the 67-year-old “Duck Dynasty” star is making headlines once again.
In a newly surfaced 2009 video posted on YouTube, Robertson shares some of his dating advice, which includes that men should marry girls as young as 15.

4f777851-7ad5-4405-bce6-29b4f700d393_PhilRobertson_121913“Make sure that she can cook a meal,” Robertson is heard telling a group in Georgia in the 2009 video. “You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out. They got to where they getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting ’til they get to be about 20 years old before they marry them,” Robertson said at the time. “Look, you wait ’til they get to be 20 years old the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. (You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course.”)
Right Phil …….., REAL good advice. We’re glad you mentioned that last part!
Well boys and girls, it looks like we have TWO “Assholes of the Day” today! (I forgot about THIS group!)

TORONTO – It’s New Year’s Day and that means many brave souls across Canada and around the world will be leaving the warmth and comfort of their homes to plunge into ice cold bodies of water.
asshole trophyIn Canada the annual Polar Bear dips to raise money for charity are a tradition that dates back nearly a century.
The Polar Bear Swim Club in Vancouver has been active since 1920 and typically registers 1,000 to 2,000 participants for its New Year’s Day dip.

Organizers of the 9th annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip say they’re hoping to raise $40,000 this year to help bring affordable housing to more low-income families
But with much of Canada in the midst of a deep freeze today’s dip may be especially challenging.

Well folks, we have a third candidate for “Asshole of the Day!”
asshole trophyIf the incoming mayor of New York City has his way, tourists and residents alike won’t get to ride a horse-drawn carriage through Central Park for much longer.
Bill De Blasio on Monday reiterated his stance that it’s time for the carriages to go.
“They’re not humane, they’re not appropriate to the year 2014. It’s over,” de Blasio said. “We are going to get rid of the horse carriages, period.”

department, City Hall, ASPCA and lots of regulations,” a driver told WCBS 880′s Peter Haskell.
De Blasio gave no timeline as to when the carriages would disappear. “We are going to quickly and aggressively move to make horse carriages no longer a part of the landscape,” he said Monday. “They’re not humane.”
Drivers like Colm McKever said they’ll be out of a job if the ban takes effect. McKever also worries about what will become of the horses. “These animal rights people – their idea of having horses put out to pasture is not a realistic endeavor. The horses provide a function, they work for their living,” he told Moghe.
NOW COMES THE PART THAT MAKES THE MAYOR A “DOUBLE” ASSHOLE! De Blasio hopes to replace the carriages with antique electric cars

, which he said could provide jobs for current drivers.
And there ya have it, folks, an ‘asshole’ hat-trick!

imagesCA6LHLW7Well kids, after all those assholes, let’s hear it for our “Winner of the Day!”
Aba Atlas spent two years scrounging every penny to ensure his mother would always have a home to call her own.

untitledThe Ottawa resident said that freedom from financial worry was precisely what he had in mind when he embarked on a project to pay down the mortgage on the home in which she had raised her five children and bid goodbye to her late husband.
Realizing her own wages as a hotel housekeeper would always leave her strapped for cash, Atlas — then a private in the Royal Canadian Army — took advantage of his free military room and board to start saving up to pay off his mothers mortgage!
He did that this Christmas!
News this morning for those who suffer from depression ………………………………………, get religious!
For people at high risk of depression because of a family history, spirituality may offer some protection for the brain, a new study hints.
men63While the new study suggests a link between brain thickness and religiosity or spirituality, it cannot say that thicker brain regions cause people to be religious or spiritual, Weissman and her colleagues note in JAMA Psychiatry.

It might hint, however, that religiosity can enhance the brain’s resilience against depression in a very physical way, they write.
Previously, the researchers had found that people who said they were religious or spiritual were at lower risk of depression. They also found that people at higher risk for depression had thinning cortices, compared to those with lower depression risk.
The cerebral cortex is the brain’s outermost layer made of gray matter that forms the organ’s characteristic folds. Certain areas of the cortex are important hubs of neural activity for processes such as sensory perception, language and emotion.

untitledTHIS JUST IN TO THE PERSPECTIVE RESEARCH DEPARTMENT: The Conservatives under Stephen Harper have done an about-face for the New Year and are now actively going after the “fag-vote” [sic] by urging everyone to turn gay in 2014!
(The Naked News department managed to get a hold of a picture of Harper practicing his “gay” look!)

Folks, if ya want better proof that ALL Islamic terrorists are dysfunctional and erratic, I don’t know where you would find it!
You see, the good thing about these fanatics is that they are as likely to blow themselves up as anyone else!
_72025432_72025431The Lebanese authorities are reported to have arrested the head of a jihadist group that claimed the suicide bomb attack on Iran’s embassy in November.
Defence Minister Fayez Ghosn told the AFP news agency that Majid al-Majid, the Saudi “emir” of the al-Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades, was being held by army intelligence in Beirut.
The embassy attack killed 23 people, including the Iranian cultural attache.
Mr Ghosn did not specify when the arrest of Majid al-Majid took place, saying only: “He was wanted by the Lebanese authorities and is currently being interrogated in secret.”

angelOUR QUOTE OF THE DAY! I have disliked Islam ever since Cat Stevens got all fucked up on it!”
(I think it was Dennis Miller, but I’m not 100% sure!)
Ya might not call this politically correct, BUT, this Christmas picture of Mitt Romney with all his grand-kids, reminds me of the last Republican Convention.
One Token Black!
Of course, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry said the same thing ………………, and had to apologize!

(That’s the good thing about this blog folks, it’s sort of like owning your own company, I don’t have to apologize for anything!)
